The Good Night Prayer

Heavenly Father,

As I lay down to sleep, I give thanks to You for the many blessings You have bestowed upon me throughout this day. I ask for Your protection and guidance as I rest, and for Your grace to sustain me in the days to come.

I pray for my loved ones, and for all those who are in need of Your love and care. I ask that You watch over them and keep them safe, both physically and spiritually.

I trust in Your goodness and faithfulness, and I give You praise for Your everlasting mercy and kindness. I am reminded of Your promise in Psalm 91:11 “For he will command his angels concerning You to guard You in all Your ways.”

I also thank You for Your constant presence in my life, and for the gift of salvation through Your Son, Jesus Christ. I find solace in Your love and give You all the glory.

I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
